To follow up after this weeks Mascara post, here are my eyeliner favorites and the perfect eyeliners to complete your look. Eyeliner is a must have for me, I feel like my makeup look is naked without it. But with so many options to choose from and so many brands available its hard to decided which ones to try. Here are my top three eyeliner picks.
Ill start with the Colourpop cosmetics liner, this is the Colourpop Creme Gel Liner, it is a roll out liner pen with a thin tip. This is shade Swerve and it is a true matte black color. For convenience ill give it a thumbs up for just normal every day use, but if you are into precision pointed cat eyes then you will need to get the point sharp every time before use. The color is deep and dark and one swipe does the trick, no need to go over the same area twice. These sell for $5 on the Colourpop site but they currently do not ship to SA. To get it here you can use a mail forwarding courier like Postbox-Courier
Next up is the legendary benefit they’re Real push-up liner. This is a well raved about product and for good reason. Its convenience factor is fantastic as it rolls out with a turn of the base that clicks as you turn so you can monitor how much you are turning out, as you turn and click it pushes the product out the top of the liner pen. This ensures that the product inside stays fresh and does not dry out. The tip of the liner pen has a fine point to it and this is fantastic for perfecting a fine point on a winged liner look and getting a thin line on the inner eye. The product glides on smoothly and accurate with a good deep black color. it is long lasting and stays in place all day. I would say that it is also kind of waterproof because it does not wash off easy. benefit was very thoughtful and they even make a mini version so you can buy that first to try if you like. They sell for R295 and then R145 for the mini on Red square online store.
Last amazing liner in today’s feature is my latest purchase from the new Bobbi Brown SA online store, This is the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner shade 1 black ink. I have been using this liner in combination with the Bobbi Brown eye definer brush, It is like the long wear liner and this brush were made to go together. They work so well together and the formula of the gel eyeliner is wonderful, It glides on perfectly and has an intense black color. It is very easy to get your line perfectly defined with the brush and liner combo so a cat eye or anything you desire is dead easy. The long wear gel liner is truly long wear and lasts the whole day perfectly without fail. I also love the neat little glass pot it comes in. These are available to buy off of the Bobbi Brown SA online store and sell for R295 for the liner and R350 for the brush.
Here are pictures of me wearing the different liners so you can see what they look like. Or tho it is hard to capture the feel and texture of a liner. The convenience and performance factor of the liner comes in in the actual use of the product and that is what helps you get your look correct. These three are by far the best I own at the moment.
